Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to extend a warm invitation to authors and experts in the field of orthopedics and arthroplasty to contribute their valuable insights to our upcoming Special Issue entitled "Single-Stage Management of Musculo-Skeletal Infections: Local Antibacterial Protection, Antibiotics, and Surgical Treatments".

This Special Issue aims to serve as a comprehensive platform for the exchange of cutting-edge research and innovative approaches in the realm of one-stage revision arthroplasty. With the increasing prevalence of prosthetic joint infections, the integration of local antibacterial implant protection techniques, coupled with advancements in antibiotic and surgical treatments, has become paramount in ensuring successful outcomes for patients undergoing revision procedures.

We welcome original research articles, reviews, case studies, and perspectives that delve into the latest developments, challenges, and breakthroughs in the field. By contributing to this Special Issue, authors will have the opportunity to shape the discourse around best practices, novel strategies, and emerging technologies in the context of one-stage revision arthroplasty.

Your expertise and contributions will undoubtedly enrich the collective knowledge base, fostering advancements that directly impact patient care and outcomes.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and collaborating to create an insightful and impactful Special Issue.

Best regards,

Prof. Dr. Guillem Bori
Dr. Carlo L. Romanò
